    I love your photography as it speaks to me. You don’t see the image as a whole but as a section with its own beauty and grace of movement, motion, each image captured with its own story to tell. If I could, I’d collect all your photography. I found a couple in a thrift store and what a treasure find!!!!!! They’re in my living room which is very tastefully done and with your 2 photographs the focal point. You should be a world reknown master artist.

    • Thank you for your kind words.
      One’s always ambivalent, I would imagine, to learn that some recently purchased and beloved photographs were found in a thrift store, but once the prints leave me, they begin their own journey.
      I’ve more or less retired from photography since photography, or what I began with a photography, retired from me. I tried digital photography for a few years, I really gave it a try, but the keyboard and screen separate me too much from the process. With silver rich film, and even more so, silver-rich cold-tone enlarging paper, no longer manufactured on Planet Earth, I ended up working too hard all the while knowing I was going to fail with each print attempt.
      My extensive catalog is mainly available, stored in Seattle, Washington. Let me know and I can make arrangements for you to visit at your convenience.
      I certainly wouldn’t not oppose becoming a “world-reknown master artist”. I worked hard at it for over 40 years!
